    Build and Release Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at E la Carte in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was really excited by the company and the people, until I was told to lie about my previous salary if the owner of the company asked what my salary was. Really set the tone for the rest of the visit.
    The employees were solid and knew what they were asking about. They asked questions about their current issues with build and release, and my responses gave them potential solutions.
    If relocation assistance had been offered, I might have made a different decision!

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or really unexpected questions -- just the comment about boosting my current salary by $35000 if asked left me wondering about the culture of those I would be working for.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Turns out that the offer was not enough for me to be able to relocate my family. The request to lie to the owner of the company was a major red flag about the quality of people i would be working with.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at E la Carte.

    Interview Details

    I found out about the job from a combination of startup website job postings and twitter job postings. I then shot my resume over to the recruiter/HR who responded immediately with a phone screen. After that, an on-site was set up and I was able to meet the exec team. Things went very well and an offer package with a few different options was presented.

    Interview Questions
    • No bamboozling questions. Just solid questions about how my experience applied to the role and also gauging my interest in the different opportunities the company would have as it grows.   Answer Question

    Recruiting Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at E la Carte in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I have been working for 13 years and this by far was the worst interview experience I have ever had. First off, their office is in a small house in downtown Palo Alto. When you enter in it is very awkward when you walk into a room full of strangers who stop what they are doing to stare at you. They take you in a bedroom that they call a "conference room". The first interview was okay, then the "CEO" interviewed next and boy, I would NEVER want to work with him. Clearly thinks he has the best idea since the lightbulb was invented. When asked about his annual revenue he proudly stated "less than a million". Really? It was pretty laughable. AlI other questions I asked he gave very snarky short answers and did not want to further explain anything.

    Interview Questions
    • None. The CEO tried to grill me but the whole interview was just a joke. By the time I had walked out I had already made up my mind that I did not want to work there.   Answer Question
